CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Awareness

When suffering a cardiac arrest, with every minute that passes the chance of survival is reduced by 10% - 12%. When living in rural areas it is especially important for communities to act together and provide life saving treatment before the arrival of the paramedics.

AED's are designed to be used by anyone, and they can massively increase the chance of survival for a cardiac arrest victim. However, without good quality resuscitation the casualty has very little chance of surviving with just an AED. This 2 hour awareness session focuses on;
